>> jimmy: i can't wait until the commercial break when you just punch me. this is gonna be great. [ laughter ] >> oh, you know what, this reminds me -- >> jimmy: wait, you're not gonna punch me, are you? >> no, no, no. no, no. but, it's so funny because it's like being back on a bicycle, hanging around you. because you're such an easy guy to be around. but, you know, we haven't seen each other in ten years. >> jimmy: has it been ten years? >> ten years. i played your father on "saturday night live," when i hosted the thanksgiving episode in 2001. well, no. we ran into each other a couple of times, but not really hanging out. >> jimmy: yeah. >> but, the last time we really hung out -- >> jimmy: it was 2001? >> it was 2001, and i was hosting a thanksgiving episode. and i played your dad on this skit where you did "nick the computer guy." >> jimmy: yeah. >> the stuffy computer guy remember that? >> jimmy: yeah, of course. please, hold the applause. yeah, yeah, yeah.
